10 Patriotic Desserts & Snacks That Deliver Maximum Impact for Minimum Effort

Show your patriotic pride on Memorial Day or July 4th by flying that flag and making a fun patriotic dessert or snack for your family. Here are 10 red, white and blue dessert and snack ideas that are easy to make, and so delicious. Enjoy your holiday by delivering maximum impact for minimum effort!

1. Bake your favorite box cake mix in a 13x9-inch pan. Frost with white icing and use strawberries and blueberries to create a flag. If you want to get fancy, color a little of the icing with red food coloring and pipe around the edges.

2. Layer whipped cream and strawberries in individual dessert cups. Top with fresh blueberries.

3. Add blue and red M&Ms to freshly made popcorn or pre-popped popcorn.

4. Bake brownies or a chocolate cake mix in a round baking dish or a square baking dish. Frost with white icing and use strawberries and blueberries to create a flag.

5. Use cubed white cheese (feta, mozzarella, Swiss, white cheddar, etc.), cubed watermelon and blueberries to create a flag on a bed of baby arugula.

6. Bake cupcakes in patriotic cupcake liners and frost with white icing. Add red, white and blue sprinkles to the top.

7. Prepare a white cake mix according to package directions. Divide in half and add red food coloring to one half and blue to the other. Bake in two round cake pans. Frost with white icing and top with red, white and blue sprinkles.

8. Melt white candy melts in a bowl. Dip pretzel rods into the melted candy melts to cover about three-fourths of the pretzel. Lay on foil and allow to dry. Once dry, melt the blue candy melts and dip the pretzels just at the end. Melt red candy melts and use a plastic storage bag with the end cut off to make lines on the remaining white section. Add star-shaped sprinkles to the blue area to create a flag.

9. Bake your favorite cupcakes and allow to cool. Divide a tub of cake frosting into three bowls. Leave one white, add red food coloring to one bowl and blue to the other. Frost. Arrange them on a platter in a flag shape. Add star-shaped sprinkles to the blue cupcakes, if desired.

10. Now for the easiest dessert of all! Serve red, white and blue frozen treats. What could be quicker and more refreshing?

What fun ideas!! Especially love the cheese and watermelon flag and pretzels. Everyone should eat fruit (especially watermelon) on hot summer days. Stay hydrated! health: Watermelon: How This Fruit May Help You Lose Weight & Stay Hydrated!
